For the last 14 years, I learned, through my own relationship, what orgasm equality really means. And I’ve become really passionate about helping other women also learn about it and start creating it in their lives.
Clitearcy has become a topic that’s really fascinating to me, particularly, in the last couple of years. In 2019 I purchased the book Becoming Cliterate by Dr. Laurie Mintz. It continued to inform me. And I loved the way that she wrote about all of the aspects of sexuality within feminism that so often get lost.
Orgasm equality is also an important facet. And this is what drove me to invite Dr. Mintz to the podcast. We had an interesting conversation that I think you’ll really enjoy!
In this episode we cover:
- The orgasm gap and what it is.
- What cliteracy is and why it’s important to become cliterate.
- How the orgasm gap is affecting heterosexual relationships in the bedroom
- What survivors should know about reclaiming their sexuality through becoming cliterate
- How media and mainstream pornography affect the orgasm gap
- How our use of language impacts our perspective of pleasure
I know you’ll learn so much about how you have the power to enjoy your sexuality and reclaim it, little by little or at whatever pace works best for YOU!
